Does the first cold weather snap mean the same thing for you as it does for me; runny nose, cough, maybe even laryngitis? I usually get a flu shot, so flu is not a big concern for me.
My wife has already been hit by some kind of bug that laid her low for more than a week. She never missed work and only began to get better after spending two days on the weekend resting.
Sedgwick County Health Director Claudia Blackburn tells me as of last week only six cases of influenza had been confirmed in the county. She advises that a flu shot takes two weeks to become effective, and this year’s shot seems to be very effective on this year’s bug.
Blackburn’s very concerned about pertussis … whooping cough. You may want to consider immunization. I had whooping cough when I was 16 and I can tell you it’s no picnic!
Our thought for today is from Jackie Mason:
“It’s no longer a question of staying healthy. It’s a question of finding a sickness you like.’”
